...now I honestly wonder how we managed without NHS SBS
Jeff Deane, Director of Finance, NHS Westminster
Procure to Pay (P2P) and eProcurement provide a comprehensive service that includes raising electronic requisitions, the generation and despatch of purchase orders and invoice payment.
Built on the skills and experiences of our team, along with simplified and automated process and enhanced reporting, NHS SBS P2P offers more than simply an invoice processing system. For example, our service includes an out of office function and escalation process to prevent delays. By applying leading edge thinking, processes, technology and best practice we deliver value across the NHS through:
e-Procurement provides intelligent information, procurement dashboard, analysis and modelling tools and price comparator reports that deliver significant benefits, including:
By supporting smarter buying initiatives across the NHS including Collaborative Procurement Hubs, NHS Supply Chain and PASA through shared catalogues, we allow clients to maximise the budgets and resources they use to buy goods and services.
Easier to use, faster and more efficient than a traditional paper-based system, eProcurement is also more accurate in terms of data capture and automates processing, reminders and other administrative tasks.
As a paperless system, NHS SBS eProcurement also helps NHS organisations meet their commitments to reduce energy use, and will be further developed to meet statutory obligations on reporting carbon footprint reduction.
